Can someone plese tell me how to remove the IE (Internet Explorer) shortcuts or icons for all users in a Terminal Server environment.  I have managed to rid all users of Outlook Express shortcuts but need to know how to remove IE shortcuts for existing and new profiles.

Create a new group policy in active directory, In user configuration > administrative templates> Desktop there is an option to hide internet explorer from desktop and quick launch. :)
